Don't Talk Like That...

I write to find out what my heart thinks....

I write to expose and work through the ugly parts of this raunchy disease. My words always help me understand that in this life there will be times that are crappy painful and unexpected but tucked in there are the amazingly wonderful, too. That is when I realized the only control I have over any of this is how I chose to experience them! I realized that I could understand, celebrate can survive even better when I could express these feelings with my own words of courage, humor, and grace. I am the Queen of my own life and the choice is mine!

I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to grieve my losses, to laugh long and hard, and to learn how to live a full magnificent life with heart failure.

I am honoring my creativity, and exploring all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say....."Don't talk like that!"

Enchilada Eve.....

Yes Cheryl, There is an "Enchilada Eve"!

15 Years ago in a turkey/ham holiday revolt we opted to have Enchilada's for X-mas Eve dinner. Evans' Enchilada Eve has become a wonderful irreverent tradition at our house and we love it! Unfortunately I was unable to do my Enchilada Duty this year, but what a marvelous gift to see my children Darren and Jill carry on the tradition. It is the little silly things we do year after year, like the Jones family cinnamon rolls that the Evans's have done for 40 years now. These are the threads that stitch my family together and I am truly blessed.
